    The Yeast Bay - Wallonian Farmhouse II

    This is a single strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from the same source as our Wallonian Farmhouse strain, a well-known brewery hailing from the Walloon region of Belgium.

Temperature: 68-80 ?F (20-27 ?C) || Attenuation: 80%-82% Flocculation: Medium-Low || Flocculation: High

    IN-STOCK YEAST: We maintain stock of high-selling liquid yeasts in the shop, to make it easy for anyone who needs liquid yeast in a hurry. These will always be sold within the best before date. If a strain is out of stock, then it won't show up as an option for you to purchase. If you want the freshest liquid yeast, or if we are out of stock, consider using the pre-order option. Pre-ordered yeasts are ordered directly from the manufacturer on your behalf and we do not use in-stock yeast to fulfil pre-orders.

    PREORDER DEADLINE: Each month we place a liquid yeast order, either for WYEAST or White Labs and The Yeast Bay. All pre-orders placed will be part of our next order from the relevant supplier, subject to the supplier having your pre-ordered strain in stock.

    We place our orders on or after the 20th of the month. The deadline to ensure your pre-order is included is midnight the day before.

    All pre-orders will be available for pickup or shipping after we receive the yeast which is usually around the first week of the month.

    *Note: we will ship your order when your yeast arrives, so if you wish to place an order for other items and want to receive them sooner, please place a separate order.

  7. Wyeast - Belgian Strong Ale - Strain 1388
    $14.95

    Wyeast - Belgian Strong Ale - Strain 1388

    Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus

    Profile: The classic choice for brewing golden strong ales. This alcohol tolerant strain will produce a complex ester profile balanced nicely with subtle phenolics. Malt flavors and aromas will remain even with a well attenuated dry, tart finish. This strain is prone to stalling at approximately 1.035; racking or slight aeration will encourage it to finish fermentation.

    Metric Temperature Range: 18-27 °C

    Notes: This Wyeast yeast strain has been classified as Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus using rapid PCR analysis. This strain carries the STA1 gene, which is the “signature” gene of Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. diastaticus and will be found in all diastaticus strains.

    FLOCCULATION: Low
    ATTENUATION: 74 - 78

    $14.95

    Wyeast - Belgian Abbey Style Ale II - Strain 1762

    Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Profile: An excellent yeast strain for use in Belgian dark strong ales. This strain has a relatively “clean profile” which allows a rich malt and distinctive ethanol character to shine. Delicate dried fruit esters can be produced when used at higher fermentation temperatures or in a high gravity wort.

    Metric Temperature Range: 18-24 °C

    FLOCCULATION: Medium
    ATTENUATION: 73 - 77
    ABV: 12

  9. Wyeast - Bavarian Wheat - Strain 3638
    $14.95

    Wyeast - Bavarian Wheat - Strain 3638

    Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Profile: A complex alternative to the standard German wheat strain profile. This strain produces apple, pear, and plum esters in addition to the dominant banana character. The esters are complemented nicely by clove and subtle vanilla phenolics. The balance can be manipulated towards ester production through increasing fermentation temperature, increasing the wort density, and decreasing the pitch rate. Over pitching can result in a near complete loss of banana character. Decreasing the ester level will allow a higher clove character to be perceived. Sulfur is commonly produced, but will dissipate with conditioning. This strain is very powdery and will remain in suspension for an extended amount of time following attenuation. This is true top cropping yeast and requires fermentor headspace of 33%.

    Metric Temperature Range: 18-24 °C

    FLOCCULATION: Low
    ATTENUATION: 70 - 76
    ABV: 10

    IN-STOCK YEAST: We maintain stock of high-selling liquid yeasts in the shop, to make it easy for anyone who needs liquid yeast in a hurry. These will always be sold within the best before date.
